Malit in the Community Drama aims to educate and entertain through performance based learning. We cover a wide array of topics for young people (from primary to secondary school age) aiming to make
learning about important issues informative and fun.
We operate within schools and the community offering sessions not only in term time but also during school holidays, weekends and after school.
"Malit in the Community Drama came to work with our BTEC Level 3 groups to give them experience of working with an outside practitioner for an alternative genre of Immersive Theatre. They showed great subject knowledge and passed this passion and love of the subject onto our students through a range of interactive practical sessions. They where approachable, friendly and professional and ensured that students were guided at each step to make good progress and showed this understanding through a practical performance. Our students and myself would love to have more time to work with Malit in the Community Drama as this work was fun for all involved and she created a space that allowed the students to explore a difficult concept in a creative way but also in a safe and respected place"

"Malit in the Community Drama came into Range High School to do a drama workshop for our year 10 GCSE pupils on social media apps and their effects on young people. Thank you to the team! They were well prepared and organised. Professional and easy to talk to. They established a great relationship with the students and the workshop was engaging and fun. They have run two projects with the school. One focused on a book year 7 students where studying called 'The Breadwinner' where the team helped our students to understand some of the deep concepts within the book. The other focused on the effects of social media.
Both sessions opened up some interesting discussion for future exploration. We would welcome the group back again!"

"On Saturday 16th February Anna and Megan from Malit in the Community Drama came to do a workshop with my dancers aged 6-15. The dancers are currently getting ready for North West championships and I felt they needed an extra push with their performance skills. Anna & Megan were able to tap into the fun side of performance & explore different techniques for the dancers to use - engaging their facial expressions and how body language can contribute to minor details. A number of the dancers are experiencing difficultly with teenage life & both of the girls were able to relate - creating an opening talking space for the girls having only met them that day. I was so impressed by how professional both Anna & Megan whilst maintaining a relaxed learning environment for all groups, all abilities. We will certainly be welcoming Malit in the Community Drama back on a regular basis at DWN"
